OCW layering and cure time

Recommended Posts

Hi there. I recently picked up some OCW and must pass on my congratulations on a pretty awesome product. The ease of use is what really gets me.

 

Have some questions though:

 

1. Does OCW have a 'drying' time? When would OCW be fully 'cured'?

 

2. Related to the first questions, how fast can OCW be layered? Immediately? After 30 mins? Overnight? Is there a limit to how many layers can be applied in a single session?

 

Cheers!

Hello and welcome to the Optimum Forums. :thumbsupup[1]:

 

OCW is fully cured in 15 to 24 hours but one can layer it at least twice in that time and have no issues, at least in my experience. 3 layers seems to be pushing it.

 

I wait about an hour between my first layer and the second layer.

 

It can be used though weekly, such as I do, after each wash and I get great results with it when used like this. Plus, as you noted, it's so easy to use, so fast, that it takes no more than a few extra minutes to do the whole car.

 

Glad you like the product and hope you enjoy your stay here.

I find a little smearing occuring when layering within 24 hours, esp in low temp weather.

I find 3 days minimum the best time to wait. This coudl be due to conditions in Melbourne, Australia though.
